CCT Die Cuts and Punches

At CCT this week we would like you to use die cuts and punches on your card, a nice and easy challenge. I have started to decorate a mini album to put some photos etc in of our recent trip to Rome. So far I have only managed to decorate the front but at least I've made a start! I bought the album from a craft sale a few years ago and have just used a piece of kraft card distressed with Pumice Stone ink to decorate the cover. The stamped image is from a new set by Tim Holtz 'Cityscapes'. The word Rome is die cut using the Tim Holtz Wordplay die, the numbers are from a very old Quickutz set and I added 2 punched corner tabs. I added some ribbon etc to the metal ring and 3 small tags cut with another Tim Holtz die. The words are stamped with some little alphabet stamps I picked up at the NEC a few years ago, they were a real bargain at £1.

Hopefully I will manage to get a couple more pages done at the weekend.
